Teen sues high school over Facebook swimsuit photo

FAYETTE COUNTY, Ga. -- A Georgia teenager is suing her former high school after she says administrators used her Facebook photo to warn parents and students about posting racy pictures online.

The photo of 17-year-old Chelsea Chaney shows her in a bikini with a cardboard cutout of rapper Snoop Dogg.

Chaney says the school’s technology director put it on a slide with the caption: “Once it’s there, it’s there to stay.”

The technology director apologized and said he chose the photo randomly.

The teen’s lawsuit is asking for $2 million, but school officials say they don’t believe the technology director did anything illegal.
